It’s been four years since Bjork released an album of her own (2007’s Volta), but it looks like she is prepping its follow-up this year. The singer was speaking to the Icelandic newspaper Fréttablaðið, where she mused on her future plans without giving too much away about what they involve.
“I have had some bad experiences with a number of things before,” she said, explaining her reticence to go into any great detail on her recording plans in 2011. “I’m very superstitious. I go into the studio with a plan to go do what I have in mind, and then the idea is half dead.”
However, she did discuss the inspiration for one song: “I saw 100 talks and met eccentric people who had been in Africa for four years with lions and insects,” she said. “Then one night after drinking whiskey with them I began to hear stories. This is one of the collaborations I can talk about.” The good news doesn’t stop there; it appears Bjork will also playing live around the new record. “Hopefully I will be able to be on tour in the fall,” she said.
